Hello all. It's a bit late, but it will soon be morning!
KEF said "Do we all think that BusyLizzie will have filled her car with plants already ? She must have been here a couple of hours" - so far I have bought one plant, geranium psilostemon, and we have been to Borde Hill gardens near Haywards Heath. Great Dixter tomorrow.
Glad WWs open day went well.
Tired, going to bed, goodnight all.
Morning all! Glad all went well Tina. Sounds like you all had a good day, enjoy Great Dixter, B-L.
I have decided there is no justice. Yesterday was my day off = RAIN. Today I work and it's cloudy but with blue skies and sun. Boo.
Take care all, have a good one.
Good morning all
Tina - glad yesterday was ok. Hope all is well.
BL, give our love to Gt Dixter - it's the place that made OH realise that living with a gardening nut had it's good points You can give his love to the the Gunnera - he'd never seen one before I took him there and although he's seen many since that one has stuck in his mind
Potential heatwave today (although apparently we're still going to have a cooling Northerly wind coming in off the North Sea) - must water my pots before I go to work this morning!
Morning all very dull here but they say it's to reach 20 later here's hoping all watered ready for whatever we get up to mother in laws tonight to put up the 2 hanging baskets i made for her need to fix brackets on to wall first now off to work have a good day all.
Have a good day Andy
I've been putting some pretty inconsequential posts on some threads to try to bump them up above the spam, so if you wonder why I'm posting on absolutely everything, that'll be the reason - flippin spammers
You're doing a grand job Dove ! Hope your day at work is better than the last few ...
Glad you are enjoying yourself Lizzie - LOVE Gt Dixter - very envious.
Not sure about heatwave here Daisy - but no rain.
Anyone ever managed to get rid of rabbits? Have one (hopefully singular) causing havoc - never had any before. Have a humane trap, that he is ignoring - any ideas what they like eating best (apart from my phlox)?
Mr MacGregor found that lettuce made them sleepy - then he could catch them and put them in a pie
Oh, and thanks! 76 working days and counting .................
Well done monitor Dove - they don't give up easily do they
Hope you get a better day today
Good luck chicky- they'll eat everything given half the chance
The only things they didn't eat at my last house was juniper, berberis,crocosmia, alchemilla, daffodils and snowdrops. It seemed to be worse in spring when the babies arrived and had a go at everything so anything popping it's head up got rumped right away. So called rabbit proof plants like pieris and bergenia got demolished.
And if you think you've only got one chick- remember- they breed.......like rabbits
Hello to new posters & to spammers, good job done Dove.
Hope all sickies feel better today, and those at work have a decent day, also thinking about Bev. More lovely pics appearing on posts, so enjoy seeing real gardens.
BusyL only the one? well you do have to look after them until the end of the hols. I think we should have a sweepstake as to how many you take home.
Today a bit dull and only 12C but supposed to improve. Today it's off to Mum's garden, lopping & chopping on the cards and no doubt the odd buttercup. Better have an extra doughnut, oops meant piece of toast, I was thinking of Verdun.
KEF- when you report spam tell us on here- otherwise you bump their ad back up! D'oh!
They really are a pain
That last spammer was sneaky - waiting until I was in the shower
Bright blue sky here in lancs today, might even manage to do some weeds unless i can find an excuse.
First job to get out of bed though.
We've all done it don't worry!
Dove- it's ok - KEF and I stepped in as the reserve army!
Off to work now
Re the spammers....don't really bother me now. Just skip past them. Agree it's best not to,post on those threads at all but just to mention it on others .
Very warm, humid, misty.....sun is forecast
Again not a gardening day but everything is in place and growing fast.
Have great day everyone
Well done the army against spammers
BL sounds as if you are having a wondwerful time,have never been to Grest Dixter,but it is on my list of places I want to visit.
Good luck getting rid of the rabbit/s Chicky,can,t suggest anyting to help you.
Suprised to see you about Verd after your doughnut binge yesterday,thought you might feel a tad delicate
Dull but dry at the moment,have a good day all.
Great Dixter is my all time favourite, but off to Polesdon Lacey with Hortisoc instead.. perhaps I can hijack the coach and join you there... take me to Cuba!!
I usually just mention on th spam thread that I've reported it, 'cos otherwise if people don't read this thread first, (and possibly not everybody does) then they know it's been done - then I try to bump everything else up
Love to see great dixter. Would have enjoyed meeting with Christopher Lloyd too but I would have so much to say to him. Unique character wasn't he?
I really don't,think the spams spoil the forum very much. I,think we have all gotten used to them
